Dasara food committee is planning to organize a ‘food mela’ for processors to showcase their products in order to attract more footfalls this year, as reported by Economic Times.
The food festival will be organised at Mysore scouts and guides grounds from 25th September to 2nd October.
Dasara Food Fair Committee will provide accessibility to food processors and manufacturers. The Dasara Food Celebration Committee in Mysore has come out with an idea to attract the people in large numbers for the ‘food festival’.
The Committee has provided direct accessibility of the fair to food processers and manufacturers by asking them to set up their own stalls in the mela.
“Each food processor will be provided with a 10 x10 ft or 10x 20 ft stalls at the venue and they can set up their shops. Food processors would also show case their products and directly sell them to consumers and bulk buyers under direct sale from factory to consumers,” said Suresh Kumar Jain, Food Sub- committee Chief. He further shared that besides consumers and visitors, this will also help processors and manufacturers to do their business.
Jain disclosed that various organisations in the field including CFTRI and DFRL have come forward to show case their innovations and provide information on various support schemes and subsidies available for establishment and expansion of food processing and manufacturing industries by Indian government.
